Password in Crystal Report  ,

I am using Visual Basic , Crystal Report 4.6 and MS Access 97 . Now I have designed a Report using Crystal    report 4.6  . The Database is in MS Access and the  Database is password Protected .
I am using the following code to Display the Report .


        CR1.ReportFileName = App.path & "\pur.rpt"
        CR1.DataFiles(0) = App.path & "\Inventory.mdb"
        CR1.Password = "password"
        CR1.Destination = crptToWindow
        CR1.Action = crRunReport

So when I execute this code the Crystal Report asks for password . So what should I do in order to the have the  password coded in the programe so that user is not disturbed.

My connection to Access is as follows

Set conn = New Connection
            Dim path As String
            path = "D:\Inventory2\Inventory.mdb"
            Set res = New Recordset
            Set comm = New Command
           

     str = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
          "Data Source= " & path & ";" & _
          "Jet OLEDB:Database Password=password;"
